In this workshop, we’ll turn our attention to trees, focusing on the interaction among them and with humans and other species. Engaging all of our senses, and considering the mythology surrounding particular trees and the calls for planting and tending, we’ll write poems in search of new modes of communication.

Please note the following workshop requirements:

  • Limit one ticket per purchase.
  • Any tickets purchased at the member price require a current Just Buffalo membership.

If you’d like to participate but there’s a financial barrier, scholarships are available! Email info@justbuffalo.org.
